My brother passed away in January. The previous September we celebrated his 50th birthday. At that time he has had two surgeries to remove his brain tumour, radiation treatment and biological treatment (the second operation left him with no feeling in his left limbs and the left side of his face).
Additionally he was part of an experimental treatment and was wearing a sort of cloth made helmet connected with wires and electrodes.
He was weak and would speak quite softly. However, our stories and presents really excited and uplifted his spirit.
Laughter, hardship, gratitude and everything in between comprised our own little mesosphere.
